Drove it to the shop. Had a caliper seize up on me while driving. I barely made it to the shop and when I arrived my front right brake was on fire. Burned up god knows what... the flames were a foot tall for about two minutes till we got water to put it out. The rotor was glowing orange too. Craziest s*** of my life. Needless to say
... I'm getting my brakes done lol

yeah i was kinda busy trying to put out the fire, didnt have the chance to snap a pic for you guys haha
Update: needs new calipers, rotors, pads, some lines (melted during fire), and fluid (current fluid boiled during fire)
only one side got destroyed but both sides need to match. soooo about 900 dollars total (including some power steering stuff, and my inspection)

Put some new Limited headlights on the WJ

Before:


After:


Got another trailer ball, as I'm borrowing my neighbor's trailer, and it has a 1 7/8" ball and mine was a 2" one. Checked out the factory trailer harness I bought several years ago, works like a champ! Loading it up for a trip to VA for a week.
